ARTICLE 38. 

REPORT OF THE PLANNING BOARD UNDER ARTICLE 38 

The Planning Board hereby submits the following 
final report with recommendations to the Annual Town 
Meeting on March 7, 1964. 

Pursuant to and in accordance with the applicable 
provisions of Chapter 40A of the Massachusetts General 
Laws, the Planning Board held a public hearing on Feb- 
ruary 13, 1964 on the proposed amendments to the exist- 
ing Zoning By-Law contained in Article 38. 

Based upon said public hearing the Planning Board 
believes that clarification of the provisions relative to non 
conforming and temporary uses and the addition of a section 
relative to reduction of occupied lots are both necessary 
and desirable, and imanimously recommends the adoption 
of the amendment. 

BURTRAM J. PRATT, 

Chairman 

COHASSET PLANNING BOARD 

ARTICLE 38. VOTED: unanimously by a voice vote, 
that the Town amend its existing Zoning By-Law by de- 
leting the provisions of Section 2 in their entirety and sub- 
stituting therefor a new Section 2 as follows: 

SECTION 2. NON-CONFORMING & TEMPORARY USES. 

A. Buildings and Uses already in Existence. 

Any lawful building or structure, or use of a building, 
structure or land, existing on the effective date of this 
By-Law or any amendment thereto which does not comform 
to the provisions thereof may be continued without expan- 
sion unless and until abandoned. A non-conforming use 
which has been discontinued for more than three years 
shall be deemed to have been abandoned. 



36 



B. Change of Non- Conforming Use.

mit a non-conforming use of a building, structure, or land 
to be changed to a specified use not substantially different

or use. 

The Board of Appeals may authorize by special per- 
mit a non- conforming use of a building, structure, or land 
to be extended or a non- conforming building to be struct- 
urally altered or enlarged, provided that such extension , 
alteration, or enlargement; (i) will not have a material 
adverse effect on the value of land and buildings in the 
neighborhood, or be detrimental to the normal use of ad- 
jacent property; and (ii) will not be injurious or dangerous 
to the public health, or hazardous because of traffic con- 
gestion or other reasons. 

D. Restoration of Non- Conforming Buildings. 

A building or structure devoted to a non-conforming 
use (whether in whole or in part) and a building or struc- 
ture non-conforming as to height, setback, yards or other 
provisions, may, if damaged, destroyed or torn down, 
be repaired or reconstructed within the same portion of 
the lot and used as before, provided that such repair or 
reconstruction is substantially completed within three years 
of the date of the damage, destruction, or razing. 

E. Temporary Uses. 

In any district, the Board of Appeals may authorize 
by special permit a temporary building, structure, or use 
not in conformity with the provisions of this By-Law, pro- 
vided that such use will not be detrimental or injurious to 
persons, property or improvements in the vicinity and the 
Town. Such authorization shall not be for more than one 
year at a time nor be extended over more than a total of 
three years (whether or not consecutive).

Rather the emphasis was in improving the areas of lib- 
rary service, the arts and student activities where room 
for improvement had been found by the 1961 evaluation 
committee. Meanwhile the more intense effort toward 
academic achievement was continued at all levels. 

The increase in pupil enrollment was somewhat less 
than expected and it seems as if the increases in 1965 and 
1966 school year may also be modest. With maximum 
scheduling of available space, including the dining hall and 
auditorium, the High School will be able to make do for 
these school terms without reducing or dividing its pro- 
gram. The large increase projected for the fall of 1967, 
however, makes it imperative that additional facilities be 
provided by that time if the present program is to be con- 
tinued. 

Without a doubt the maintenance of our teaching staff 
and recruiting of replacements remains as the major con- 
cern. This is irrevocably related to the salary program 
for teachers, a complex and little understood problem. 
Fortunately, Cohasset citizens have backed the comm- 
ittee in supporting a relatively attractive salary schedule 
which so far has enabled the schools to recruit and retain 
a clearly superior teaching staff. The outstanding record 
of Cohasset High School students in standard tests and in 
admission to competitive colleges is good indication of 
good educational performance at least in the academic 
field. 

The committee has judged that the town desires ex- 
cellence in its schools and has consistently worked to 
achieve it. In this endeavor it has again in 1964 been for- 
tunate in the wise and tireless professional leadership of 
Superintendent William Ripley, Jr.

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

The year 1964 may be characterized as one superior 
performance by our teaching staff and outstanding achiev- 
ment by the students at aU grade levels. The new pro- 
grams and approaches to the various areas of academic 
work continue to promise further excellence. Valuable 
assistance has been received from the Parent Teacher's 
Association in providing opportunities for parents to be- 
come acquainted with the changes taking place in the ed- 
ucational world. The graduating class from the High School 
demonstrated that Cohasset parents and pupils are alert 
to today's need for preparation in the modern world; 91% 
of the class qualified for admission and planned to con- 
tinue their education; 50 of the graduates entered 4 year 
colleges; 10 entered 2 year colleges, and 17 enrolled at 
technical or specialized schools. Cohasset High School 
had 5 students who qualified as finalists in the National 
Merit Scholarship examination, and 5 more received letters 
of commendation. This is a unique and remarkable re- 
cord. 

In the coming year a decision must be made regarding 
the organization and housing of the secondary school pop- 
ulation. Projected enrollments indicate that the present 
overcrowded condition will be critical by 1967. There- 
fore the problem to be resolved is whether to add to the 
present high school, develop a campus type school, or 
build a separate junior high school. Only by using com- 
putor scheduling has the present enrollment been efficient- 
ly accommodated. Cohasset High School was one of a very 
few schools involved in this experimental work and has 
been written up nationally. 

Curriculum revision is a constant concern of the ad- 
ministration and teaching staff. Closely allied with this 
is the concern for a coordinated and sequential program 
consistent with the most modern educational trends from 
the kindergarten through the twelfth grade. In the areas 
of mathematics and science, pupils are responding well 
to the new approaches. The Deer Hill program for im- 



75 



provement in written composition under the supervision 
of Mr. JohnH. Treanor appears to be very effective. The 
Spaulding method which has been used in an effort to im- 
prove spelling is quite successful. The three reading su- 
pervisors in our system are working especially to produce 
a coordinated program in reading. 

Parents and citizens interested in more detailed ac- 
counts of the many facets of our activities are cordially 
invited to visit and discuss our activities and programs. 

At this time I should like to include a few words of 
appreciation and commendation to two of our teachers, 
Miss Mary Terry and Miss Florence Reed, who retired 
in June. Miss Terry entered the Cohasset School System 
in 1925 and Miss Reed in 1929. For their many years of 
devoted and valuable service to the children of Cohasset, 
I convey the gratitude of parents and former students. I 
also express my appreciation to Mr. Anthony D'Antuono 
for 9 years of excellent work during an unprecented growth 
period in his administration of the Cohasset High School. 

May I once again call attention to the faithful and help- 
ful attitude of the members of the School Committee in the 
management of Cohasset' s greatest enterprise and re- 
sponsibility - the education of its future citizens. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIAM RIPLEY, JR. 
Superintendent of Schools

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL DENTIST 

To the Board of Health 
Cohasset, Massachusetts

Weekly clinics at the two elementary schools through- 
out the year accomplished much of the needed dental re- 
pairs that are so prevelent in this age group. 

Films, film strips, blackboard lectures and classroom 
instruction combined to bring the message of good oral 
health to the elementary grades. Here the basic concepts 
are formed and we try to make health education prominent, 
in their curriculum. 

I would like to express my appreciation to Mrs. 
Gormley and the school staff for their many favors through- 
out the year . 

Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIAM G. MATTESON, D.M.D. 

COHASSET INCINERATOR COMMITTEE 

There were no developments during the year 1964 re- 
quiring the attention of the Cohasset Incinerator Committee. 
The Committee, however, continues to follow with interest 
the activities in the neighboring towns and is ready to act 
whenever changing circumstances call for new study. 

Very truly yours,

RE PORT OF THE COHASSET PUBLIC 
SEWERAGE SYSTEM STUDY COMMITTEE 

After careful consideration the Study Committee cir- 
culated a petition to place the question of acceptance of 
the Enabling Act before the voters of Cohasset, by means 
of a referendum on the 1965 town ballot. Such a vote of 
the electorate will result in a more accurate estimate of 
town support of some sort of future public sewerage sys- 
tem for Cohasset than the limited voter sample of a Town 
meeting can provide. The need for positive action is 
underscored by a recent Board of Health sanitary survey 
that disclosed numerous sources of pollution of Pepper- 
mint Brook, which drains into Lily Pond, one of the 
sources of our water supply. Even though efficient treat- 
ment and continual testing result in a safe, pure water 
for distribution to our homes, the threat of recurrance of 
such a public health problem here or elsewhere will remain 
until finally eliminated by construction of a public sewer- 
age system. 

The Enabling Act, passed by the General Court as 
Chapter 65 of the Acts of 1962 and amended by Chapter 
104 of the Acts of 1964, merely authorizes the town to 



85 



construct and operate a system or systems of sewerage 
and sewage disposal. The question of ACCEPTANCE of 
the Enabling Act that is to be voted on therefore relates 
only to any future specific proposals that may be presented 
to the town. The Study Committee has inserted no article 
in the 196 5 warrant; no money is involved in the referen- 
dum question, nor is approval of the 1964 plan or any other 
particular plan. 

In the five years since its formation under Article 30 
of the 1960 Town Meeting the Cohasset Public Sewerage 
System Study Committee has made several full reports to 
the voters, in separate pamphlets issued in October 1961 
and October 1962, and in the 1963 Town Report. Recom- 
mendations in the form of articles have been presented at 
a special 1962 Town Meeting and at regular Town Meetings 
since 1960. The town has appropriated a total of $24, 300 
to defray the expense of engineering studies, printing of 
reports, and preparation of detailed plans and cost esti- 
mates. The plan recommended by the Study Committee 
and the Advisory Committee at the 1964 Town Meeting 
providedfor a system of 1.3 miles of sewer mains to serve 
125 connections in the business center of Town, Elm St. , 
and part of the Cove area and Border Street. Such a sys- 
tem and a treatment plant, using a modern "extended 
aeration'' process, located in Jacobs Meadow, could be 
built at an estimated total cost of $405,000. It would 
provide a permanent solution to the many difficult prob- 
lems of sewage disposal on small lots in the area, would 
eliminate most of the sources of pollution of James Brook 
and the inner Harbor, and would be an excellent nucleus 
for development of a larger system that might eventually 
serve most of the Town. 

The Study Committee still regards a public sewerage 
system as anecessary public utility that should be started 
at as early a date as possible. Each year of delay per- 
petuates a nuisance and public health hazard and results 
inan increase in construction cost. The system described 
above and rejected by the Town Meeting in 1964 would have 
c OS t $4 05 , 00 a year ago . Today the e stim ated construction 
cost is $426, 000, and next year it is expected to rise to 



86 



approximately $443, 000. In any consideration of the 
economics of sewage disposal the cost of a public system 
must be balanced against the cost of initial construction, 
maintenance and often expensive modification of individual 
systems, andthe effect of property depreciation that must 
inevitably occur in problem areas. The annual net carry- 
ing and operating charge for the sewerage system proposed 
in 1964 would be less than the average amount spent by the 
Town for snow removal in one year. 

It is apparent that no plan for a public sewerage sys- 
tem can be implemented for Cohas set without a wider base 
of active, responsible, citizen interest and support. If 
citizens are satisfied of the need for a system (the numer- 
ous appropriations for engineering study are evidence for 
such a feeling) they should assist the Study Committee by 
seeking or publicizing satisfactory answers to the more 
important objections that have been raised. Is the pro- 
posed plan unsatisfactory because it is not presented as 
part of a comprehensive plan to cover most of the town? 

The Committee has in hand data sufficient to outline 
acomprehensive plan with approximate cost, if this infor- 
mation is desired. Can the town afford a comprehensive 
sewerage system? This is a question that would require 
a careful financial study as well as Advisory Committee 
consideration to answer. It brings up related questions, 
such as the economic loss due to property devaluation, 
and the current annual expense of maintaining and repair- 
ing all individual disposal systems in town, which Study 
Committee does not have means of answering in a precise 
way. Do many citizens really feel that the treatment 
plant should not be located in Jacobus Meadow? An alter- 
nate site undoubtedly could be found, if the voters are 
willing to pay the additional cost that would be involved. 
Your help is needed to find an acceptable solution to the 
problem of safe sewage disposal, which, on an individual 
basis, becomes increasingly difficult in our growing town 
with each passing year. 

In the past year the Committee accepted with regret the

REPORT OF THE SOUTH SHORE REGIONAL 
SCHOOL DISTRICT COMMITTEE 

In September, 1964, our third school year began with 
an enrollment of 228 pupils. One year ago the enrollment 
was 189. Next fall will see the school in operation with 
enrollments in all four grades, nine through twelve. 

In June, 1964, the school held its first graduation ex- 
ercises. There were 17 graduates divided between the two 
year post-graduate electronics course and those from 
the automobile repair course who had begun their train- 
ing in Abington. It is gratifying to report that every 
pupil had a job on graduation day. In June, 1965, we ex- 
pect to graduate about 60 pupils. 

The manpower retraining courses which the school op- 
erates for the Division of Unemployment Security have 
proven very successful. All 13 of last years trainees found 
immediate employment, many having been previously un- 
employed for extended periods. In February, 1965, we 
expect to enroll about 32 trainees in two courses: heliarc 
welding and auto body repair. 

An outside carpentry course has been initiated this 
year. The first project was a field house for the new Han- 
over High School and the layout of a one room addition to 
a dwelling. Next year an outside storage building will be 
erected for the vocational school. 

The evening courses in trade extension have been pop- 
ular again this year, 144 having been enrolled in eight 
courses. 

Our staff now consists of the director, 23 teachers and 
13 non-teaching employees including one part-time nurse 
and three part-time bus drivers. 



88 



Open house was held again this year and proved a great 
attraction, several thousand attending. The public interest 
in the school remains very high as 16 indicated by the open 
house attendance and the ready acceptance of our grad- 
uates by industry. 

It is our hope that more parents will come to realize 
the splendid opportunities for training and placement off- 
ered by this school. The fact that ten percent of the stu- 
dent body is made up of non- regional students indicates 
that neighboring towns are well aware of the school's con- 
tribution to the area. The two new 800 student regional 
vocational schools to be opened in the Brockton and Can- 
ton areas within the next two years are an indication of 
widespread public recognition of the value of vocational 
training. 

Again this year the Advisory Boards and Finance Com- 
mittees of all regional towns were invited to attend the 
School Committee budget meetings and to participate in the 
discussions. This has proven to be a most effective ar- 
rangement since it allows active participation in the dis- 
cussions and decisions being made. 

The School Committee wishes to express its appre- 
ciation to the members of, our Vocational Advisory Com- 
mittee for their great interest and helpful suggestions. This 
committee consists of members of the industrial andbus- 
iness community and serves amostuseful purpose by keep-

BOARD OF 
WATER COMMISSIONERS 

The year 1964 was more than an average one for the 
Water Department. A major drought brought on additional 
demands such as more than average water treatment in 
the face of the existence of a low water table. Yet, there 
was no necessity for establishing water use restrictions at 
any time during the abnormally long drought. 

The records of the Water Department show an ever 
increasing demand on the Town's water supply. During 
1964, 177,103,000 gallons of water were pumped. This 
is an increase of 11,103,000 gallons over the previous 
year. 

Revenue committed during 1964 was $108, 785.92. This 
compares with $105,903.81 in 1963. There was a sub- 
stantial increase in the number of new water service conn- 
ections, especially for new homes. A number of water 
line improvements and extensions were installed last year. 

In June 1964 the Water Department held "open house'' 
so that all interested persons could see first hand their 
water supply facilities in actual operation. Those who did 
visit the pumping station were favorably impressed. The 
pumping station itself is undoubtedly in the best operat- 
ing condition of any previous year. This is largely due to 
efficient operation of the equipment by the Water Depart- 
ment personnel as well as the installation of the new equip- 
ment that had been authorized in Article #33 of the Town 
Warrant last March. 

It is not unreasonable to assume that the acute water 
supply shortages which have affected many nearby towns, 
have been responsible for more persons becoming water- 
conscious. Your Water Department has been alerted to 
the immediate need for exploring all potential water sheds, 
having the requirements of the future very much in mind. 



90 



During last summer, the Water Department took the initia- 
tive in presenting the wisdom of utilization of additional 
water supply sources. A typical example is Aaron River 
and as a direct result some investigations reached the 
State Engineering Department level. Increased water 
supply is available from the Aaron River water shed and 
in realizing this, the long time flooding conditions in the 
Doane Street area would be corrected. Bound Brook is 
another potential water supply not currently being utilized. 
Much of this wasted water could be diverted into Lily Pond 
for eventual treatment. 

Amajor problem of long standing is unquestionably the 
lack of adequate water pressure in much of the Town's 
limits. The best and perhaps the most appropriate solu- 
tion to much of this is the construction of a standpipe sys- 
tem. Recognizing this ourselves as well as being influ- 
enced by recommendations from professional engineers 
who have been engaged by the Water Department, the de- 
lay in awarding of a booster pumping station approved as 
part of article #33 last March, was reasonable until we 
were sure of the necessity of this supplemental pumping 
unit. 

The contract was finally awarded for the Hydro Con- 
stant Booster Pumping unit when it was determined that it 
would still be needed even with anew standpipe system. 
The standpipe would be a 2,000,000 gallon capacity and 
the recommended site is at the present open reservoir. 
The cost of this would be paid from a bond issue and from 
water revenue. It would have no effect on the Town's tax 
rate.

REPORT OF THE OLD COLONY 
TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE 



Members of the Committee have again participated in 
the various meetings held in our area during the year in 
connection with the South Shore transportation problem. 
During the year there have been significant changes in the 
organization dealing with these problems, and the Metro- 
politan Area Planning Council has set up a South Shore 
Area Transportation Coordinating Committee. 

Mr. Eat on has been appointed the designee of the Board 
of Selectmen to represent Cohasset in attending the meet- 
ings of this group, and the other three members of the 
Transportation Committee have been named by the Select- 
men as members of the Technical Advisory Committee to 
this organization. In addition, the Town is represented in 
the Greater Boston Regional Planning Project by the Chair- 
man of the Board of Selectmen, a member of the Planning 
Board, the Chairman of the Conservation Commission, and 
Mr. Eaton, and the Town is represented on the Advisory 
Council of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority 
by the Selectmen. 

Your Committee feels that with this revised organ- 
izational set-up, its own duties as a strictly local com- 
mittee have been taken over, so that although the respon- 
sibilities which the Committee has been undertaking for 
over ten years will continue to be dealt with on behalf of 
our Town in different form, your committee feels that it 
has come to the end of its functions and respectfully asks 
to be discharged.

REPORT OF THE LIBRARIAN OF THE 
PAUL PRATT MEMORIAL LIBRARY 



The big event in Library hi story for the year 1964 was, 
of course, the completion, furnishing and opening of the 
new wing. The year was a test of endurance for all con- 
cerned and entailed the moving of thousands of books among 
other tasks. This was all accomplished without closing 
the Library at any time and with very little inconvenience 
to the public . 

In this report I would like to extend, publicly, my 
greatappreciationtomy small but valiant staff, and would 
also like to express my firm belief that I have the best 
Board of Directors and Trustees to be foimd anywhere. 
The Library now shows what the concerted efforts of all 
concerned accomplished and I sincerely hope everyone is 
as pleased as I am with the results. As time and money 
allow we hope to further improve all facilities but the big 
job is done. 

Once again we extend our deepest appreciation to 
Isobel Grassie and the South Shore Art Center for making 
the Library a more interesting and attractive place through- 
out the year. 

Main events of 1964: 

Library Week - April 12th through 18th - Art exhibits and 
special exhibit of books. 

Completion of new wing - August 15th. 

Dedication - September 27th. 

Old Colony Library Club meeting at the Library - Nov- 
ember 3rd. 

Book Week - November 8th through 14th - Special exhibit 
of books, art, and Book Week material. 

Statistics for the year are as follows: 

New registrations: 490 

Number of books added: 1758 

Number of books withdrawn: 1668 

Total volimies in Library: 29, 343 

Adult circulation: 49, 000 

Juvenile circulation: 31,647 

TOTAL 80, 647

REPORT OF THE COH ASSET 
CONSERVATION COMMISSION 

The year 1964 was one of increasing activity by the 
Conservation Commission. At the annual town meeting in 
March we were sponsors of three articles in the warrant, 
and cosponsors of a fourth. The nearly-unanimous acc- 
eptance of all those articles indicated the enthusiastic sup- 
port of the townspeople for efforts to conserve the beauty 
and the natural resources of Cohasset. 

The most important of the conservation articles voted 
at the annual meeting was the one which amended the town's 
zoning bylaw to require a special permit from the Board 
of Appeals to excavate or fill "any marsh, brook, pond 
or bog. " This new bylaw is somewhat similar to a state 
law enacted in 1 963 , but whereas the state law applies only 
to areas "bordering on coastal waters" the new regulation 
for Cohasset now covers the whole town. Since there 
have been some instances of filling marshland because of 
ignorance of these laws, the conservation commission has 
attempted to publicize them through the local newspapers 
and by posting copies of them in the town hall. 

Another special article sponsored by the commission 
at the annual meeting established a so-called "Conserva- 
tion Fund", with the modest initial appropriation of $500. 
This fund is primarily for the purchase of property desir- 
able from the conservation standpoint, and we plan to re- 
quest a more substantial sum at the next annual meeting. 
Appropriations to this fund accumulate from year to year, 
and will be available if needed, with the approval of the 
selectmen, without the necessity of calling a special town 
meeting. 

As a result of the enlargement of the commission from 
five to seven members, and through the cooperation of the 
selectmen, we added a representative from the Beechwood 



99 



section, Herbert Marsh, and a member of the legal pro- 
fession, Robert Kilmarx. 

The commission completed the index of open spaces 
referred to in last year's report and this index will be 
amended from time to time and kept up to date. 

Partly as a result of this study of the Town's open areas 
the commission made its first acquisition for the benefit 
of Cohasset, namely a perpetual easement from Dr. and 
Mrs. Henry B. Bigelow covering Treat's Pond. Thus, 
through the generosity of the owners, this area of natural 
beauty will remain unspoiled, and at no cost or loss of tax 
revenue to the town. 

During the year the commission has met and consul- 
ted with various official and unofficial organizations of the 
town. As a result of one such meeting the Board of Health 
adopted new procedures with regard to applications for a 
sewage disposal permit when there is a question of excava- 
ting or filling which may involve local or state laws. 

In order to publicize the need for conservation efforts 
in our town the commission arranged, through the cooper- 
ation of the Water Department, to enclose with the Dec- 
ember water bills an excellent Reader's Digest reprint 
entitled "Conservation is Everybody's Battle". It is hop- 
ed that many citizens will want to enlist in this battle while 
there is still time to save Cohasset's beauty and other nat- 
ural resources.

SOUTH SHORE MOSQUITO CONTROL PROJECT 



To the citizens of the Town of Cohasset: 

Submitted herewith is the report of the South Shore 
Mosquito Control Project's activities in the Town of Co- 
hasset for the year ending October 31, 1964. 

The Town of Cohasset appropriated $4200 for mosquito 
control in 1964. Along with this $800 was appropriated 
for salt marsh maintenance. This money was used for 
mosquito control in the Town of Cohasset by the South 
Shore Mosquito Control Project, a cooperative effort em- " 
bracing the City of Quincy and the Towns of Cohasset, 
Braintree, Duxbury, Hingham, Hull, Marshfield, Norwell, 
Scituate and Weymouth. The Project is a year round op- 
eration based on a three-phase plan in the reduction of 
mosquitoes; that is Permanent Control, Preventive Control 
and Adult Control. 

PERMANENT CONTROL 
600 feet of existing drainage ditch were cleared of their 
blockages to reduce possible mosquito breeding areas. 

PREVENTIVE CONTROL 
300 acres of small isolated woodland swamps were 
prehatch treated with dust upon ice in winter months to 
prevent the development of the mosquito eggs. 

907 acres of larger swamp areas were treated in the 
spring of the year by air from a helicopter for larval con- 
trol of spring mosquitoes. 

During the summer months many areas had to be check- 
ed and rechecked for possible mosquito breeding and if found 
sprayed. 1080 gallons of insecticide sprayed for larvel 
and pupal control mixed for and applied at the rate of a 
gallon per acre. 



106 



Catchbasins area source of a great many mosquitoes. 
These have to be treated as often as three times a summer 
season, depending on a wet or dry season. 1400 basins 
were treated in the Town. These are the basins treated, 
not the number of town basins. 

ADULT CONTROL 
Spraying for adult mosquitoes becomes necessary where 
complaints of large numbers of mosquitoes move into an 
area, usually migrating from uncontrolled areas or from 
the many small water containers that breed the Culex or 
house mosquitoes. 398 gallons of insecticide were space 
sprayed with hydraulic sprayer and mist blower mixed and 
applied at between one half and one gallon per acre . 

When weather and other conditions were favorable an 
insecticidal thermal fogger was used. This usually in the 
evening hours. 47 gallons of insecticidal fog oil was ap- 
plied at the rate of four and a half acres to the gallon. 

The insecticides usedby the South Shore Mosquito Con- 
trol Project were: 

D. D. T. Wettable Powder 

D. D. T. Emulsifiable Concentrate 

Malathion Emulsifiable Concentrate 

Malathion Immiscible -and oil (fog) 

Naled DiBrom #14 (fog) 

Baytex (catchbasins) 

All these insecticides are registered and labled for use 
in mosquito control and are applied at no greater amounts 
than their labels recommend as being proper for mosquito 
control operations. 

The main goal of this project shall always be to work 
toward eliminating as many of the mosquito breeding sites 
as possible through drainage or fill rather than a depen- 
dence on insecticides. To reduce the mosquito pest along 
with reducing amounts of chemical pesticides is what or- 
ganized mosquito control means.

The Project wishes to acknowledge the help received 
from officials and departments of the Town and sincerely 
hopes that the benefits derived by these departments as a 
result are as great as those derived by the Project. 



REPORT OF THE TREE WARDEN - 1964 

All work possible has been done to keep the public shade 
trees of the town in good condition. 

Twenty-five trees of desirable size, shape, and spe- 
ies were planted in 1964, mostly on Elm Street and in or near 
thecenter of town. Eleven on private property, to replace, 
so far as possible, trees cut because of disease, old age, 
or deterioration. Trees may be planted on private prop- 
erty within twenty feet of the highway by the Tree War- 
den upon request, and with the permission of the land- 
owner, but trees are planted on public or private proper- 
ty only where they have the opportimity of growing to ma- 
ture size without becoming a nuisance. 

About twelve trees, mostly maples, have been cut 
because of dangerous condition. Compaction of soil by 
fill or parking and continued serious drought have con- 
tributed to decline in many public shade trees, notably 
maples. 

Over twenty stumps of trees cut earlier were removed 
by machine, allowing roadsides to be graded and seeded. 

Deadwood has been cleared from trees on all streets 
where dangerous, and when possible. The Brockton Ed- 
ison Company has cooperated in clearing deadwood or top- 
ping dangerous trees over their lines. 

Last Spring, all trees on the Common were fertilized 
by a commercial arbor ist, with a recommended mixed 
fertilizer. 

Grass along all roadsides was mowed at least once 



108 



last summer, and brush along roadsides, especially on 
corners, was cut to improve the vision of motorists. 

Many of our streets meet at sharp right angles, with 
trees, shrubs, etc. obstructing the view of oncoming 
vehicles. New streets and driveways are, or should be, 
built with curved approaches and some provisions should 
be made for clearing existing obstructions. Some towns 
have by-laws limiting vegetation on blind corners. 

Anyone noting defects in the public shade trees or with 
suggestions for improvement of the trees or roadsides is 
urged to call the Tree Warden. 

With thanks to the Board of Selectmen and all Town 
Officials and citizens who have aided or cooperated with 
me in my work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HOWARD BATES, Tree Warden 



REPORT OF MOTH SUPERINTENDENT 

Despite the fact that Gypsy moths are again building up 
on Cape Cod, where they had been nearly exterminated by 
aerial spraying around 1950, no Gypsy moths have been 
found in Cohasset. They may be reintroduced, however, 
if control work is not done elsewhere in the State. 

Few cankerworms were found on Forest Avenue or in 
Wheelwright Park, but a heavy infestation occured on Cedar 
Street and along the northwest border of the Cohasset Golf 

Club property, which may need aerial treatment this coming 
spring. 

Elm leaf beetles were present, but were effectively 
controlled by Mist Blower, using Sevin as the insecticide. 
Sevin, an insecticide of low toxicity to desirable wildlife 



109 



and humans, was used exclusively for all foliage spraying 
this past season. 

DUTCH ELM DISEASE 
All diseased trees condemned in 1963 were cut and 
cleaned up by early 1964. 

In 1964, a total of 85 Elms were found to have Dutch 
Elm Disease, a fairly low number compared with the last 
twelve years. Of these, 67 were found on private property, 
where they had received little or no protection by spray- 
ing. 

At the time this is written, most free falling trees have 
been removed, and a contract will soon be let for the top- 
ping of more difficult trees; all should be removed by 
Spring. 

Three barrels of Methoxychlor, an effective and com- 
paratively safe insecticide, and four barrels of DDT were 
used for the dormant spray of ehns to combat the Euro- 
pean Elm Bark Beetle, the vector of Dutch Elm Disease. 
An appropriation will be asked to purchase all Methoxy- 
chlor, at a cost of a little more than twice as much as for 
DDT, for use in 1965 dormant spraying. 

POISON IVY SPRAY 
All poison Ivy and Ragweed found along the roadsides 
was sprayed with Brushkiller, with good results. 

All citizens noting sudden wilting or yellowing of elm 
leaves in mid-summer or any other evidence of disease 
or insect damage of any trees, are urged to call the Moth 
Superintendent. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HOWARD BATES, 
Moth Superintendent

TOWN ACCOUNTANT'S REPORT 



I herewith submit my annual report in accordance with Section 
61 of Chapter 41 of the Tercentenary Edition of the General Law, for 
the year ending December 31, 1964, showing in detail the appropria- 
tions, expenditures, and the receipts from each source of income. 
Also a recapitulation sheet and a balance sheet showing the assets and 
liabilities and trust accoimts. 

In accordance with Section 57 of Chapter 41 of the Tercentenary 
Edition of the General Laws, you will find a detailed report of the 
Town' s Debt which amounts to $1 , 565 , 000 . 00 with the amoimt of interest 
due in 1965 of $37,032.50 and principal of $161, 000. 00. 

During the year the Director of Accounts made an audit of the books 
and accoimts of the Town for the period from May 1, 1962 to July 22, 
1964 in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 44, General Laws. 

The records of permits and licenses issued by the Selectmen and 
other departments, receiving money for the Town or committing bills 
for collection were examined and checked, the reported payments to 
the Town Collector andTown Treasurer being compared with the Treas- 
urer's recorded receipts, also the Savings bank books and securities 
representing the investment of the several trust fund's in the custody 
of the Town Treasurer. 

The Treasurer's cash balance was proved by reconciliation of 
the bank balances with statements furnished by the banks of deposit and 
by actual count of the cash in the office. 

A copy of the Director of Accounts' audit is in custody of the 
Town Accountant and can be seen by any citizen who wishes to. 

Inclosing, I wish to take this opportunity to thank all departments 
for their sincere cooperation this past year. 

MALCOLM H. STEVENS, Town Accountant

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN 



The mandates of the Town to the Board of Selectmen, as voted at 
Town Meeting included work on Government Island pier, completion of 
the Veteran's Memorial Park, and the extension of the wall at the 
Woodside Cemetery. With the very great assistance of interested citi- 
zens, all have been completed except the last mentioned. The Select- 
men have held this project in abeyance pending determination of the 
future status of the New Haven right of way which borders upon Town 
ownedproperty at this location, as well as elsewhere in the Town. The 
Board has established and is continuing close communications with the 
railroad with respect to the possible disposition of this strip through 
the Town. 

The properties of Margaret A. Kline and Martin Guida have been 
deeded to the Town. Negotiations in respect of the layout of James Lane 
have been continued by Town Counsel. 

The Board of Selectmen, acting in concert with the Aaron River 
Committee and the Water Department, requested and have received the 
co-operation of the Division of Waterways in making available an en- 
gineer to examine the corollary problems of clearing Aaron River and 
increasedwater supply to Lily Pond. Initial indications call for a peti- 
tion by the Selectmen to the Department of Public Works for a stream 
clearance project in Aaron River with possible future consideration to 
be given to a dam in the Lily Pond area. The Board has voted to pre- 
sent the stream clearance project petition to the Department of Public 
Works in March. 

The status of the Hingham Ammunition Depot Annex continues 
unresolved and the Board has maintained its surveillance. Arrange- 
ments for the acquisition of the Nike Site by the State Department of 
Public Works were completed during the year. In co-operation with, 
and at the request of the Water Department, the Board of Selectmen 
has completed preliminary negotiations making a portion of this area 
available as a location for a water system standpipe. 

The lengthy planning studies for the harbor dredging at last seem 
close to fruition. We have been advised that the New England Di\TLsion 
of the Army Engineers have forwarded a favor able report to Washington. 
We have received assurances of full co-operation from the Division of 
Waterways of the Department of Public Works. Our own "Kitty" of 
$25,000 has made the Town's contribution of $48,500 an attainable 
goal and an article to raise the needed $23, 500 has been inserted in 
the warrant for the March Meeting. The attention of our Senator 
William D . Weeks and our Representative Lester J . Gates have been 
called to this project and their assistance in resolving any problems 
which may arise has been requested, and has been readily promised. 



162 



That the overall status of the Town continues good is due in n^ 
small measure to the employees and department heads who have con- 
tinued to give more than full measure of their time and talents . It is 
fitting that we are able to record our thanks to them all in this report.

REPORT OF THE AARON RIVER COMMITTEE 



After meetings with the Board of Water Commissioners and Mem- 
bers of the Board of Selectmen, it was resolved by this Committee that 
flooding of the Aaron River can be best corrected by a Massachusetts 
Department of Public Works, Chapter 91 project for stream clearance. 
A petition is planned to reach the Department of Public Works through 
the Board of Selectmen during March, 1965 as the first step in gaining 
consideration for 50% Commonwealth participation. 

If our petition for a Chapter 91 project is favorably considered, 
an article will be inserted in the Town Warrant for funds so that the 
proposed stream clearance may be started as soon as possible.

REPORT OF THE HIGHWAY SURVEYOR 



Submitted herewith is the report of the Highway Surveyor for 
the year ending December 31, 1964. 

The Department worked on street drainage during the winter 
and spring. Most of the drainage was installed on streets that had 
obsolete systems or no drainage at all. This program will continue. 

Thirty- eight standard catch basins were built and 4, 338 feet of 
10" and 12" pipe was laid. 

Two and one-half miles of mix-in-place was laid in various 
sections of town and 6,862 feet of Bitimiinous concrete was laid on 
sections of North and South Main Street. 



Chapter 90 Maintenance funds were used to repair Mill Bridge 
and re surf ace Mar gin Street. The Department has requested Chapter 
90 Construction and Maintenance funds for 1965. The Construction 
funds will be applied to the Forest Avenue project as approved by the 
State Department of Public Works. The Maintenance money will be 
used on streets approved by the state for such aid. 

Street signs have been replaced, repainted, and new signs in- 
stalled. 

I wish to thank the Town Officials, citizens of Cohasset and the 
men of the Highway Department for their loyal support and cooperation. 

LOUIS C. BAILEY, JR., Highway Surveyor 
REPORT OF THE WIRE SUPERINTENDENT 



The following is the annual report of the Wire Department for 
the year of 1964: 

FIRE ALARM AND POLICE SIGNAL 

Five miles of new overhead wire was installed to replace old 
wire. New cross arms were replaced where needed. Three new fire 
alarm boxes were installed to give better coverage. New parts were 
replaced in traffic signal equipment because of damage and relocation. 

TOWN OWNED BUILDINGS 

. All repairs and new installation of electrical equipment was 
done by this department. 



164 



WIRE INSPECTION 

Work by electrical contractors was inspected and permits and 
fees were filed with the Town Accountant and Treasurer. 

I wish to express my sincere thanks to all Town Officials and 
Departments for their co-operation. 

EDWARD P. MALLEY, Supt. of Wires 



CIVIL DEFENSE REPORT 



I herewith submit the Civil Defense Report for the year ending 
December 31, 1964. 

* 
The 2G0 bed hospital formerly located at the Cohasset High 
School was inventoried and moved to more adequate quarters in the 
basement of the new addition to the Deer Hill School. The storage 
area at this location and the area available in which to operate the 
hospital qualifies the Towti for an additional 200 bed hospital, the 
additional sections are currently arriving. 

Discussions have been held with neighboring towns relative to 
the training of Personnel from each Town so that the hospital could 
be used for other Communities who do not have a unit of this type. 

Training Programs in the various fields such as Rescue, Med- 
ical Self Help, First Aid and Shelter Management have been offered. 

Additional radiological monitoring equipment has been procured 
inorder to expand our capabilities of radiological monitoring through- 
out the Town. 

Program papers and staffing reports have been prepared, filed 
and approved as required, in order to keep our rating in Civil De- 
fense and qualify for surplus property. 

Regular visits to surplus property depots have been made and 
several items have been procured at greatly reduced costs.

BOARD OF PUBLIC WELFARE 



The Department of Public Welfare in Cohasset has intensified 
its service to families with children to meet Federal requirements 
effective July 1, 1962. Theobjective as set forth by the United States 
Department of Health, Education, and Welfare is the reduction of 
dependency through rehabilitation, to strengthen family life, and the 
safeguarding of children in hazardous home situations. These services 
are now being extended to other categories of assistance. 

The total expense of assistance for 1964 was $135,813.21, of 
which 74. 3% was reimbursed by Federal and State. 

The administrative cost was $13,648. 97, of which 65. 5% was 
reimbursed. OnDec. 31, 1964, there were 90 cases active involving 
152 persons. 

The following is a report of the Social Service League from 
Jan. 1, 1964 through Dec. 31, 1964.

referred by the caseworker to Mrs. Oliver for financial assistance. 
Her cooperation in planning for rehabilitation is greatly appreciated 
by the League staff. In addition 2 cases were handled jointly, that 
had been known over a long period of time. 1 case will require con- 
tinued co-operative effort in 1965.

REPORT OF THE PLANNING BOARD 



In company with other communities on the perimeter of the 
Metropolitan Area, Cohasset continues to show steady growth as ev- 
idenced by the subdivision statistics at the end of this report. 

As near as can be determined from the figures for the three 
years since it was published, town growth is "on schedule" with the 
predictions set forth in the Long Range General Plan completed in 
1961. This report sets probable population figures of 7, 500 in 1970, 
8, 100 in 1975, and 10, 300 in 1985 based on present zoning regulations. 

How wisely we plan and how boldly we act now to control this 
growth will set the pattern for the Cohasset of the future. There are 
a number of areas in which the community should act positively to 
insure that the challenge of continued growth will be met. Among the 
more urgent are the following: 

(1) Adoption of a new Zoning By-Law and Map requiring 40 , 000 
foot building lots in selected areas not now built up. The 
Planning Board will present such a new law at a special 
town meeting in 1965. 

(2) Acquisition by the town, through its School Facilities Com- 
mittee, of necessary sites for future school needs before 
these sites are preempted for housing. A complete blue 
print for these acquisitions is set forth in the report of 
Educational Service Associates as part of the Long Range 
General Plan. 

(3) Acquisition by the Towti of all the right of way of the New- 
Haven Railroad lying within the town. Talks with railroad 
officials were started in 1964 and should continue until a 
price on which the town may act has been arrived at. This 
land provides a logical, and vital, corridor for future 
transportation needs. 

(4) Continued support of conservation uses for the 800 acres 
in the Naval Ammunition Depot, preferably under State 
ownership, if and when it is again determined that there 
is no Federal need for the property. 

(5) The formation, at an early date, of a Capital Outlay Com- 
mittee, consisting of representatives of major town boards 
to make an inventory of needed capital expenditures and to 
keep before the town a yearly priorit}^ schedule based on 
sound financial practice. 

The Long Range General Plan (Benjamin Report) continues to 
be the "Bible" for the Planning Board. Some have asked what time 
schedule might be anticipated for the accomplishment of the major 
provisions of this plan. Here again, we are "on schedule". Our 



167 



Plan is three years old and the average implementation period in towns 
which have similar plans is said to be ten to fifteen years. 

There is some confusion in the public mind (not lessened by 
recent editorial comment) about the responsibilities of the Planning 
Board concerning the Zoning By-Law. While the Planning Board is 
the instrument through which Zoning By-Laws and amendments are 
recommended to the town, the Board does not administer or enforce 
these laws and does not issue permits under them. The related State 
Laws and local regulations governing subdivision control are the 
province of the Planning Board and under this function, the record 
for 1964 shows the following actions: 

27 plans were determined not to require approval under the 
subdivision control law and were so endorsed. Approximately 50 
newhouse lots are available for building as a result of these endorse- 
ments. 

2 subdivisions approved in previous years were presented with 
minor changes and were re-approved after public hearings. These 
were Old Coach Road containing 22 lots, and Surrey Drive containing 
14 lots. Pine Ridge Road, a new subdivision of 5 lots off Beechwood 
Street, was presented and approved after a public hearing. As this 
report is being prepared a hearing is scheduled for Cedar Acres 
Lane, a subdivision containing 20 lots. The total number of lots in 
this location is 37, but 17 of these have been endorsed as not re- 
quiring approval (since they have frontage on either Forest Avenue 
or North Main Street) and are reflected in the totals in the preceding 
paragraph. 

The Planning Board again acknowledges with gratitude the ser- 
vices of its Zoning AdvisoryCommittee consisting of Donald J. Evans, 
Louis F. Eaton, Jr., Roger B. Coulter, David E. Place, and Ray- 
mond G. Buckley. 

The Board also notes with pleasure the appointment of one of 
its members, Nathan W. Bates, as chairman of a committee on re- 
creation and open spaces of the Metropolitan Area Planning Council.

REPORT OF THE FIRE DEPARTMENT 



Therewith submit the report of the Fire Department for the year 
ending December 31 , 1964. 

FIRE DEPARTMENT ORGANIZATION and PERSONNEL ALLOCATION 

There are presently employed sixteen permanent officers and 
firefighters in the Fire Department. These men are divided into three 
work groups, each commanded by an officer and working 56 hours per 
week. These three groups are again divided and then assigned to Fire 
Headquarters, North Cohasset, and Beechwood.

It should be noted that there is a lack of personnel to fill out the 
necessary positions, primarily at Fire Headquarters. The Relief Man 
would fill vacancies as they occur due to sick leave and vacations. 
Without this man it is necessary to place one company out of service. 
The Fire Alarm Operator would take charge of the radio, telephones 
and fire alarm equipment, would see that covering apparatus is avail- 
able in the event of simultaneous or multiple alarms, or contact util- 
ity companies if needed, and the proper authority if special equipment 
is needed. 

Call officers and call firefighters are assigned to the various 
companies as follows:

There are a few vacancies in the call force roster but it is dif- 
ficult to find men that are in town most of the day and most important 
. .that are willing and able to become call firefighters. Many of the 
self employed people in the town do not feel that they can stay away 
from their business for very long periods .

This lighting truck, which has proven valuable at night fires, 
was rebuilt and donated to the department by a group of the firefighters. 
The equipment contained in it was either surplus equipment or donated 
by interested persons. The truck carries a 10,000 watt generating 
plant, floodlights, electric cables, acetylene cutting torch, ropes, 
block and falls, jacks and other smaller pieces of equipment. I know 
of no other Fire Department of comparable size that has a lighting 
plant that will equal this unit. 

STATION AND EQUIPMENT 

Again I must say that the Fire Headquarters building is a tre- 
mendous improvement to the operation and efficiency of the depart- 
ment. All equipment can be comfortably housed and the quarters for 
the men are clean, spacious and comfortable, the department is proud 
of this facility. 

The stations at North Cohasset and Beechwood are no longer ad- 
equate for use as sub-fire stations. The floor space is inadequate, 
the ceilings are too low, the garage door openings are too narrow and low, 
the facilities for the men quartered there are the barest minimum and 
thesafety of the buildings is questionable. Both locations are poor for 
response of these companies and the buildings do not lend themselves 
to economical remodeling and repair. The size of the buildings is such 
that re-assignment of apparatus is almost impossible. Present day 
apparatus will not fit inside the stations except that which is tailor 
made for each station. 

A fire station properly located should allow the company to be 
in the "hub" of the area of response, as well as meeting several other 
requirements for location, neither of these stations allow this response 
in more than one direction, .nor do they meet the other general re- 
quirements . 

The department has acquired, through the generosit}^ of a group 
of local citizens, a "rescue boat". This boat is a flat bottom aluminum 
boat 16 feet in length. It was presented to the department complete 
with oars, life jackets, ropes and life preserver. Since it has been 
in service we have occasion to use it only once but is much safer way 
to perform the task of ice rescue. 

The apparatus of the department was subjected to a performance 
test by the New England Fire Insurance Rating Association. This test 
is used to determine the efficiency of the pumping equipment of the de- 
partment and to see if the equipment can still meet its rated capacity. 
All pumping engines passed this test and were reported in good con- 
dition. 

The complete inventory of hose of the department was tested and 
washed, minor repairs were made as needed and the results of the test 
and repairs recorded on the hose inventory cards . The hose loads of 
each of the pumpers was changed several times in the year, which is 



171 



part of the hose maintenance program of the department. Replace- 
ments were made of the older lengths of hose to keep them within the 
range of the proper life usefulness. 

The hose bodies of all major pumping engines are now modified 
to permit them to lay parallel lines . . or two lines at a time. This 
speeds up the process of getting sufficient water on a fire and usually 
means that only one pumper need be out of service at a time. 

Repairs and adjustments were made to both the apparatus and 
equipment as the need arose and I feel that they both are in good order 
and repair. This was brought out in the previously mentioned per- 
formance test of all pumping apparatus.

GENERAL 

In conjunction with the Cohasset Board of Health and the United 
States Food and Drug Administration the department held in custody, 
after seizure, 143 gallons of a highly flammable waterproofing agent. 
After an order from the United States District Court ordered its dis- 
posal it was taken to the dump and burned. 

Any resident of Cohasset having in their possession some of this 
water repellent "X-33" should contact the Fire Department immedi- 
ately and arrange for its disposal. 

The New England Fire Insurance Rating Association conducted a 
survey in Cohasset during 1964. These surveys encompass a detailed 
look and evaluation of the Town and are pointed specifically at the Fire 
and Water Departments. After this study and evaluation is completed 
a basis for establishment of the fire insurance rates is then available. 
The results of this survey will be available sometime in early 1965, 
along with a list of recommendations for meeting their requirements. 

Several members of the department, at their own expense, at- 
tended the Fire Training School conducted by the New Hampshire Fire 
Chiefs Club at Fitzwilliam, New Hampshire. This training under ac- 
tual fire conditions has proven extremely valuable. 

All permanent officers and men, along with a group of the call 
firefighters, attended a course conducted under the supervision of the 
American Red Cross and were certified in Standard First Aid. When 
the arrangements can be completed a course in Advanced First Aid 
will be offered. 

RE COMMENDATIONS 

The following subjects are set forth for your thoughts and con- 
sideration in the future. 

1. the addition of at least two permanent firefighters to the 
department to allow the department to function at a safe 
minimum strength regardless of sickness or vacations. I'he 
table of organization in the first part of this report indicates 
these vacancies. Until such time as these men are added 
the fire department cannot function at a safe and efficient 
minimum strength. 

2. a study of the possibilities of relocating the stations at North 
Cohasset and Beechwood, keeping in mind possible consolid- 
ation. The fire companies quartered in these stations serve 
not only the immediate neighborhood but the entire town. An 
article to this effect is contained in the Warrant for the An- 
nual Town Meeting for 1965.

3 . construction of a fire training area which would include a 
ladder training tower, a combination smoke house and fire 
combat building and a pumper test and drafting pit. 



APPRECIATION 

In the year 1964 there were no deaths or retirements of any fire 
department members. There was one resignation: 

Ralph R. Studley, assigned to Engine 2 as a call firefighter, 
who served from November 9, 1938 to August 17, 1964. .26 
years of faithful and honorable service to the Town of Cohasset. 

In concluding this report I would like to extend to the citizens of 
Cohasset, the Honorable Board of Selectmen, the heads and members 
of all Town Departments and committees my sincere thanks and apprec- 
iation for the manner in which they cooperated with and assisted this 
department in the past year. 

Iwould also like to thank the officers and men, who are the Fire 
Department, for their fine cooperation, assistance and understanding. 
Without these very necessary things it would be very difficult to have 
continued to carry out the program and activities of the department. 

CHARLES PIEPENBRINK 
Chief of Fire Department 



REPORT OF THE PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 



The Personnel Committee has met regularly in the Town Hall on 
the second Thursday of each month and has also held additional meetings 
in order to consider the requests of the various town departments. 

Members of the Board have also attended two meetings of the 
Massachusetts Personnel Boards Association which furnishes the 
Cohasset Board with salary schedules and information on most towns 
and cities of Massachusetts. 

After making comparisons of eight surrounding towns the Board 
will recommend at the town meeting in March of 1965 that pay for 
Cohasset town employees be increased 4%.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH 
Personnel 



Anthony W. Vento: Health Agent and Milk Inspector 
William Matteson, Jr., D.M.D.: School Dentist 

Freddie Peterson, M.D. : Well Baby and Well Child Conference Pedia- 
trician 
Matthew Carr, D.V.M.: Animal and Slaughtering Inspector 
Public Health Nursing Services by contract with Social Service League 
Edwin H. Pratt and Charles T. Patrolia: Plumbing Inspectors 
Manuel P. Silvia: Superintendent of Town Dump 

This year for the first time the Board of Health has been suc- 
cessful in obtaining an office in the Town Hall. This is the space at the 
left hand side of the lobby. Although small, it has proved to be gen- 
erally satisfactory, except that it was not available in November and 
December when it was again taken over by personnel of the Registry 
of Motor Vehicles . With files and records in temporary storage the 
Health Agent, Mr. Vento, has been seriously handicapped in the bud- 
get preparation and other work at the end of the year. One arrange- 
ment that has contributed greatly to the efficient operation of the new 
office has been the willing and patient cooperation of Mrs. Thomas 
Silvia, of the Town Clerk's office, in answering an extension phone 
of the Board of Health. The Health Agent and Board are very grate- 
ful to Mrs. Silvia for her assistance to the many citizens who have 
called and have been able to leave a message. 

The regular working week of the Health Agent is now Monday, 
Wednesday and Friday, with hours officially set at 8:30 to 12:30 and 
1:00 to 5:00. However, the nature of the job, with a great many calls 
for nuisance investigation, or final inspection of a disposal system 
thatthecontractor is waiting to cover up, results in work outside these 
hours. Such field investigation and related administration and con- 
ference are very time consuming; they take up more than half of the 
workinghours of the Agent. For the past 3 years the Agent has spent 
10% to 30% extra time, without pay, beyond the three days per week 
provided for in the budget, in an effort to complete as much of the work 
as possible. Even so, important phases of public health activities 
have been curtailed because of lack of time: prompt follow-up of all 
nuisance abatements, disease detection programs, restaurant in- 
spection, and development of a home -owner information program on 
inspection and maintenance of an individual sewage disposal system. 
It is now clear that a full-time position for the Health Agent is essen- 
tial if a proper degree of supervision is to be exercised over the sani- 
tation problems in the town, especially those involving new sewage 
disposal systems and nuisance complaints . The Board of Health has 
accordingly requested a change in status of the Health Agent from a 
part-time position with three days per week to full time.

SANITARY SURVEY OF PEPPERMINT BROOK AREA 



A problem area that had previously given trouble with respect 
to sewage disposal again came into question this year when evidence 
was found of serious pollution in Peppermint Brook, which drains into 
the east side of Lily Pond. A sanitary survej^ was carried out on this 
area a number of years ago and corrective measures were taken with 
regard to individual problems that were detected. It was necessary to 
repeat a full-scale sanitary survey in the area and numerous sources 
were found in which sewage overflow was getting into the Brook. In 
some instances direct connections were found from laundry drains and 
sewer drains into a catch basin. Despite steps taken to break these 
connections and correct the sewage overflow the problem in the area 
is complicated by a variable degree of subsurface flow that also drains 
into the Brook. This represents another area that will be difficult to 
correct in the absence of a public sewerage system. The Board of 
Health will include Peppermint Brook in the list of sites, such as the 
Harbor and bathing beaches, where water samples are periodically 
tested. Pollution in Peppermint Brook is also important because of 
its drainage into Lily Pond, and the use of water from Lily Pond as a 
source of town water supply. However, such water is drawn from the 
west side of Lily Pond, a long distance from the outlet of Peppermint 
Brook, and a test of the water in this area did not disclose evidence of 
pollution. All regular tests carried out by the Water Department and 
by the State have always shown a satisfactory state of bacteriological 
purity in the treated water. 

SOIL INVENTORY REPORT 



The Selectmen entered into an agreement with the Soil Conser- 
vation Service in Walpole in May, under which the Service agreed to 
prepare a soil inventory report for Cohasset for the sum of $1,200, 
provided in the warrant of the 1964 town meeting. The field work for 
this survey was completed during the summer. Four copies of the re- 
port and a set of aerial photographs will be supplied to the town when 
the preparation of the report is completed some time this year. These 
reports will include maps and interpretations showing the suitability of 
the soil for the following uses: 

Septic tank filter fields source of sand and gravel 

Commercial and industrial sites roads 

home sites woodland 

athletic fields surface runoff 

development of wet lands for land slope characteristics 
waterfowl 

An effort is being made to secure additional copies of the report, 
which can be furnished at cost to those who desire them.

There were 19 dye tests of which 4 were positive. 

A sanitary survey in one area required approximately 40 hours of work 

in 1964, with additional follow-up extending to 1965. There were 7 
water samples analyzed from this area. 

TOWN DUMP 



Hours: 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. , daily except Monday and holidays 

The dump has been maintained in a sanitary condition under the 
efficient operation of the Superintendent. Owing to the increase in area 
of fill an extension of the fence is planned for this year. Funds have 
been requested to repack the well in an effort to provide some increase 
in water supply for fire protection. This measure was recommended 
after a study by the Fire Chief and Water Superintendent of alternative 
possible steps. It was necessary to carry out extensive repairs of the 
water pump and motor during the past year.

6 cases were carried to 1964 from 1963, and 4 of them are still active — 
3 in need of intensive help. Two cases, known also to the Board of 
Health, were opened in 1964 — one a difficult marriage problem, one 
in need of financial help in carrying out a medical recommendation. 
One of the new cases is now closed, leaving 5 to be carried to 1965.

SURVIVAL INSURANCE 



BE PREPARED — Know the warning signals. Check your 
emergency supplies. Decide where you would take cover: (1) 
In your cellar? or (2) in the excellent public shelters now 
available in the Cohasset area of the Navy Ammunition Depot.' 
Enter by Doane St. from Beechwood or by Howe Road, oppo- 
site west end of Sohier St. 

THE TAKE COVER SIGNAL — On the sirens an up and down 
wailing. On the fire horns short blasts for 3 minutes. 

ALERT SIGNAL — If time permits which is very unlikely, on 
the sirens the high note held steadily. On the horns a .sus- 
tained blast. 

KEEP EMERGENCY SUPPLIES — 1. Non perishable foods. 
2. Water in covered containers. 3. Battery powered radio. 
4. Flashlight, lantern, camp stove. 5. In your car keep your 
gas tank at least half filled. 

HURRICANE — Fasten your house shutters. Stay away from 
windows. Do not touch fallen wires. Telephone only neces- 
sary emergency calls. 

FLOODS — Remove motors and valuables to upper floors. 
Shut oflf electricity at main switch before evacuating. 

TORNADO — If at home : Take refuge in cellar of strongest 
house nearby, and lie on face under table or other strong 
piece of furniture, in corner toward approaching storm. If no 
cellar, lie under strong piece of furniture against inside wall. 

If in open : Proceed at right angles to path of storm. If there 
is no time to escape storm's path, lie face down in ditch or 
other depression.
